Adapted from:


  • 4 cups of beet greens, stems removed
  • ½ cup of pine nuts (or walnuts or other nut/seed)
  • 3 tablespoons of parmesan (or nutritional yeast)
  • 4 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • ¼ teaspoon of fresh black pepper
  • 1/4 cup of olive oil
  • optional: a handful of fresh herbs such as basil, parsley, or cilantro


  1. In a food processor, combine all of the ingredients minus the olive oil. Begin to blend while slowly pouring in the olive oil until the mixture is fully blended and the olive oil is fully added. The mixture should be fairly smooth.
  2. Serve over toast, on crackers, mixed in with pasta, or as a dip for chips
